"Banning Back Home" will definitely be on the main program where it belongs. I guess it will be the full film version (funnily called "Yuppie Sounds" on the manuscript), while the OST version will probably be placed at the end of Disc 2 as a bonus track. Same goes for "We Don't Wanna Grow Up", I presume.
In terms of source music, there's the fun calliope-like arrangement of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" and the christmas carol heard faintly in the background when Peter and family arrive at Granny Wendy's home.
I personally hope LLL will retrieve the "Prologue" (aka "Hook Trailer") as the opening track like in the OST--it definitely gives the feeling of a miniature concert overture.
"It's still baffling to me. I sit down with a pencil and a piece of paper and do my best... The remarkable thing is that my music is heard by billions of people." --John Williams
"Let me say, however, there is no "next" John Williams. Sadly, he is unique--- a figure who simultaneously embodies and transcends the music of all the masters of film music who preceded him (much like Brahms and Wagner of the Romantic era). He comes from a time when the craft of music in film was still one of the ear, heart and mind. Today, sadly, the craft is largely technical. Most composers do not conceive their music "inwardly" but rather at the computer--- and with rather limited skills, musically, at that. The inner spirit knows no boundaries--- our plastic abilities, sadly, do. John is a man of spirit, heart, intellect and soaring music." -- Conrad Pope about John Williams
